Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, September 27, 2022 - After a summer break of 62 days, the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe season heads into the second-last meeting of the year at the iconic Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The one-make championship, reserved for Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo, still has several titles to be decided, with 24 drivers already standing on the top step of the podium so far this year.

The championship returns to the 4.655km Barcelona track for the first time since 2020 and the fourth time in the history of Super Trofeo Europe. Previous appearances at the Spanish venue came in 2011 and 2009.

At the top of the Pro are the runaway leaders from Bonaldi Motorsport, Loris Spinelli and Max Weering, who can wrap up the drivers’ title this weekend. The dominant forces all season, the crew of the #61 car, will be looking to bounce back from an uncharacteristically off weekend last time out at Spa-Francorchamps, where they failed to win either race. Despite this, Spinelli and Weering remain 37 points clear of BDR Competition’s Amaury Bonduel, who claimed a breakthrough maiden Super Trofeo victory on home soil at Spa in July.

The battle for Pro-Am honors this season has been one of the best for years, and the Oregon Team pairing of Lewis Williamson and Massimo Ciglia will be aiming to continue their strong form in Barcelona. Already a winner four times this year - with a further three second places - the Scottish-Italian partnership has a 24-point lead over the Rexal FFF Racing Team crew of Oscar Lee and Dan Wells heading into the weekend. Behind, the Target Racing entry of Milan Petelet and Dmitry Gvazava is third ahead of VS Racing’s Emanuele Zonzini and Emanuel Colombini. Meanwhile, Micanek Motorsport’s Bronislav Formanek and Karol Basz will look for a positive weekend after missing both races at Spa-Francorchamps due to mechanical issues and car damage.

Multiple Lamborghini Cup champion Gerard van der Horst remains on course for another title at the top of the standings. Three victories, two seconds, and a third place have left the famous Dutchman 20 points ahead of Rexal FFF Racing Team’s Donovan and Luciano Privitelio. A distant third is Hans Fabri (Imperiale Racing), some 58 points further back. Belgian siblings François and Benoît Semoulin are three points adrift in fourth.

The weekend’s action begins with two one-hour free practice sessions on Friday, while the pair of 20-minute qualifying sessions are scheduled for Saturday morning. The first of two 50-minute races, with a rolling start, takes place on Saturday at 15:40. Race 2 will start on Sunday morning at 10:30. Both races will be streamed live worldwide on the Lamborghini Squadra Corse YouTube channel.
